An awesome attention grabbing featured image is a must for any blog post. It’s a known fact that content with relevant images gets 94% more views than content without relevant images (source). But web designers are not the ones that usually create content. Internet marketers, bloggers and site owners create content, and they don’t necessarily have design skills.

Budget and time constraints make it impossible for these professionals to outsource every task to web designers, and they end up doing the job themselves, and doing it poorly, a lot of the times.

Every time I had to create these images, it would take me a long time, and afterwards I wasn’t completely happy with the result.
